Former Babysitter frontman Kristian North is gearing up to release his sophomore album Passion Play next month, and today, the artist has shared another new track from the record.

His latest single "Genius of Song" finds North questioning, "in a fantastically meta fashion, how one should go about making a song."

He explained further in a release: "I saw The Genius of Painting in Spain. I'd never heard of it but I love that idea. To me, this album looks like that, like a gaudy baroque painting. If not that, it looks like a technicolour Hollywood drama."

Previously, North shared the album's lead single "Fantasy" alongside a Phil Osborne-directed video. The album, which was produced by Renny Wilson and mastered by Harris Newman, is due to arrive on April 30 via Montreal-based label Mothland. The album marks North's follow-up to 2018's The Last Rock'n'Roll Record.
